The season of spring – summer 2016 was not only full of stunning collections – also, it was one of the most diverse seasons EVER, which is a pretty big success. The model casting was much more colourful than the seasons before (even though white models are still dominating the shows). There was also a strong focus of hair – from natural afros and mullets to bald-heads and pixie pinks, the woman of SS16 is every woman. Literally.
All collages by me.
When I first saw Tomas Maier’s AW15 for Bottega Veneta, I fell something positive. Although we’ve got polka dots there and there, the collection is kept in simple way – the silhouette is very graphical, but at the same time feminine. The 60’s and 70’s are revisited, but in modern, contemporary way. And what else is exciting about the entire collection, is this beautiful, Italian mood – Bottega Veneta’s woman for fall loves a cappuccino in the morning and enjoys a glass of red wine in the evening. She does everything in slow way, but with grace and elegance. She’s mysterious, but friendly. And she has days which are black & white, and days which are full of stripes and colour block!
I thought this might catch the constantly changing mood of Bottega Veneta woman…
